Prefer vintage, but...(more)

Hi Jeff,

Yeah, I'm one of those people who immediately identify the piepan model with the Constellation marque. I'm really not excited about the newer personal opinion, but the case and bracelet design leaves me cold.

My purely personal opinions aside, the 1120 inside the modern Connie is a terrific movement...I have a Bond Seamaster Pro with that inside, and it is generally -2 sec./day in daily wear. Seeing a modern Connie in person convinced me that it is a solid, well-made watch, but I still wasn't won over by the look of it.

I own a 1966 SS piepan Constellation with the cal. 564 that I think is a work of art. The Deville line seems to really echo the vintage Constellation styling, and if I were to get a new Omega dress watch, I'd probably look at that line first.

Anyway, congratulations and wear it in good health!

Best regards,
